  1. Getting back into a 3!

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    You are coming out of a CX5 (my wife has a new RDX) and going to a Mazda 3? congrats, enjoy the new ride... some people just like smaller cars... like me and you!
  2. Why are Mazda 3's so heavily discounted by dealers?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    when electric cars overtake gasoline powered cars there won't be any transmissions, at least as we know them.
  3. Hardwire Dash Cam

    2019+ Mazda 3 How-To Guides
    be brave and find the wiring to the overhead LED lights next to the mirror, they are constant power, not switched. That would be a lot shorter wiring run than the side pillars, and you won't run afoul of the side pillar airbags. The reason I didn't search further is I found what I was looking...
  4. Dash cam installation - wire routing

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    You already are asking these questions on the 'How To Forum' So far I haven't seen a single person mention that they routed the wiring through the A or B pillar or headliner, probably because it hasn't been done or they didn't bother to post about it in the 'How To Forum' in the thread...
  5. Hardwire Dash Cam

    2019+ Mazda 3 How-To Guides
    your car doesn't have a passenger airbag light above the mirror and cabin lights in the same general location?
  6. Hardwire Dash Cam

    2019+ Mazda 3 How-To Guides
    be a pioneer, that's what I did, nobody here (so far) has wired it the way you are looking to do it, so figure it out. Here is a hint: the airbag light only works off the ignition switch, otherwise no power, but the cabin LED lights located next to it have constant power, ignition switch on or...
  7. Defective Windshield In Brand New Mazda 3 2019

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    honestly it looks like hard water spots, which can be really hard to remove with window cleaner and paper towels, but a clay bar will let you know in a few minutes if that is the issue because it will clear the exterior of the glass completely of any residue (glass only appears super smooth...
  8. Defective Windshield In Brand New Mazda 3 2019

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    one way to know if it is inside the glass is to use a clay bar on the surface (inside and outside).
  9. HVAC Heat having troubles

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I have a premium trim with a sunroof, the car puts out ample heat, maybe too much, but I have this solution where I press the 'off' button for the auto climate control and then cycle it back on as needed -- it really hasn't taxed my emotions too much to press a button every once in a while and...
  10. Reverse Light Bulbs - Brighter?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    the inner ring, on the hatch door, those 4 LED's are white, and the reverse lights.
  11. Reverse Light Bulbs - Brighter?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    2019? USA and Canada it is all LED:
  12. Reverse Light Bulbs - Brighter?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    again I am just guessing that is the layout, they will probably replace the entire assembly not a single bulb, but I am happy to be wrong and to know if we can simple swap out individual LED's somehow.
  13. Reverse Light Bulbs - Brighter?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    My hunch would be (since I am not about to take my taillights apart) is that the 4 LED array for the turn signals and the 4 LED array for the reverse lights are soldered to a board, not plugged into 4 little sockets. Most cars use a bulb, attached to a wiring harness, and all you have to do is...
  14. Reverse Light Bulbs - Brighter?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    all the lights (headlights, turn signals, reverse lights) in the current gen are LED and are not swappable (unless you put in a new OEM replacement). Since the bulbs are already LED, the odds that an aftermarket company offers an alternative version to match the OEM I would say are nil. The...
  15. Threat from the safety system.

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I think it only changes when the alert shows not the range in which the system auto brakes, if that is the case early alert would give you more warning of a potential brake activation?
  16. winter tire pressure +4.3psi?

    2019+ Mazda 3 Wheels and Tires
    I don't have TPMS sensors in my snow tires, so the light is on, but not for the reason you may be encountering. The page number in the owners manual (referencing snow tire +4 PSI) is posted above, should you wish to share that with your dealer.
  17. Threat from the safety system.

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    I am just wondering what setting you changed, all I can find in settings is what is also shown in the Mazda Connect Owners Manual, you can turn SBS on or off, or you can change the alert setting (so you get early, normal or late notice), but I don't think that changes the distance at which SBS...
  18. Threat from the safety system.

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    well since you asked, what my friend told me is that some older pilots who flew commercial aircraft in the past know how to correct the stall that was being created by the faulty 737 Max sensors. If you simply try to manually adjust the trim wheel it is impossible to move, but experienced pilots...
  19. Threat from the safety system.

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    did you think I wrote that off the top of my head and was claiming it as my own (plagiarizing Mazda for some reason, much less leaving it in metric?) I was just posting the information quickly, links aren't always preferable, many people won't click through or the site linked to may change or...
  20. Threat from the safety system.

    2019+ Mazda 3 Discussion
    No, I said Eyesight made determinations I would not have made, this didn't cause any accidents, it was just a side effect of having Eyesight operating. The benefit of Eyesight is that it operates all the time, and some decisions it makes (like auto braking one the time a woman in front of me...
